EP. 10 — The General

Amy & Paul plow full steam ahead through Buster Keaton’s silent opus The General! They realize this was the Fast And Furious of 1926, examine the rivalry between Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, and dig into Buster’s incredibly depressing childhood. Plus: An interview with Jeff Tremaine, the director of the Jackass films, on why he’s never messed around with trains.
